Make your kids bath time super extra fun with this DIY Play Dough Bath Soap 3 Ingredients Only idea. Oh, and it’s also completely MESS FREE!
Mess Free DIY Play Dough Bath Soap
My kids love playing with play dough but they make a horrible mess every single time. Play dough ends up everywhere in the house! And it really is a pain to clean it.
Do you have the same problem and need a solution? This is it! Bath time play dough is the answer. Your kids can make their favorite pieces of art while taking a bath. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about cleaning the entire house later.
I think this easy DIY idea is GENIUS. Now my kids can play with play dough and don’t make a mess at all. Clever, useful and fun bath time activity!
Your kids will have so much fun making different shapes and playing with the dough while you know it is safe (you use natural ingredients), mess-free, and it also gets them cleaned. Yes, after you play with it, you can use it as a soap. Win! Win!
This Play Dough Bath Soap Is Super Easy To Make
You can make it with only 3 ingredients: Corn Starch, Body Wash (this is the one I used for this recipe), and Coconut Oil. You can choose any body wash you want. I prefer natural products for my family.
If you use a fragrance free body wash, you can also add your favorite essential oils. I like to use Lavender for night time because it is very relaxing. A relaxing bath is great for children and helps them sleep better. The coconut oil will also leave their skins super soft.
You can also make it extra fun (totally optional), by adding natural food coloring. Choose your children’s favorite colors. Involve your kids in the process and make it extra fun. My kids had a blast making their own play dough bath soap!
Make sure you store your DIY play dough in an airtight container until bathtime to avoid soap drying out. In case this happens, add a little more body wash and mix the dough again.
I give my kids a little piece of each color each time they want to play with it in the bathtub. This recipe will last about a week.
Simple, fun, and entertaining DIY play dough idea. Give it a try, I’m sure your kids will also love it. If you are interested in other fun bath time ideas, please check out my Detox Bath Bombs For Kids.

Hi, this sounds great for when the grands are staying over and I’m begging them to get in the tub! I think they will be more inclined to bathe if they’ve made their bath wash. I have a question. Will this dissolve on its own while they are playing with it or does it leave clumps. Don’t want to stop up the drain.
